Eliaichi Kimaro

Eliaichi Kimaro lives and works in Seattle, Washington. We sat down for an interview in late April of 2022. The recording of our discussion is below. Following the video are samples of her work, links to the galleries currently representing her, and items discussed in our interview. I would like to thank Eliaichi for the discussion and using her images.
